Family History in Douglas County

My Grandparents, Howard and Colleen Steinburg moved to Waterville in the summer of 1957. My grandfather was hired as the Jr./Sr. High School principal. He also assumed the roles of counselor, teacher, coach, and athletic director. My grandmother did seasonal work in Orondo until she was hired at Mitchell’s Pharmacy.  They were actively involved with the Badger Mountain Ski Club cultivating a love of skiing through generations of our family, including my two young sons.

My two uncles, Bob and Dick Steinburg, enjoyed the great basketball tradition and graduated from Waterville High School. My father, Ed Steinburg, and his sister Caren attended school in Waterville until their family moved to Cashmere. To this day I often hear people address my dad as “Eddie” as he was fondly known during those years. My Uncle Dick moved back to Waterville after 25 years in the corporate world. He and his wife Arlene purchased Mitchell’s Pharmacy and opened up a hardware store in the old Nelson’s Dry Goods Store. They combined it with the pharmacy to become Mitchell’s Pharmacy and Hardware. My brother and I spent many happy hours that summer helping Uncle Dick at the store. We enjoyed time at the city pool and experiencing small town life.

Even though I now have businesses in larger cities I have not forgotten my family’s small town roots. Each year my sons look forward to attending the North Central Washington Fair where we purchase livestock to support future leaders involved in FFA and 4-H programs. I feel fortunate to hear the stories of Waterville in the good old days, and make it a point to find my way back to rural Douglas County to appreciate the slower pace, the pride, and values these communities provide to our area.
